mike catherwood gi 'Auction Hunters' to air its first live special with host Mike CatherwoodCelebrities: They’re just as obsessed with reality TV as we are! That’s why Mike Catherwood, former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant and Dr. Drew’s “Loveline” co-host, has signed on to host Spike TV’s first-ever live auction event in the “Auction Hunters” Season 3 premiere.

Zap2it can exclusively reveal that “Auction Hunters: Live” will kick off a brand-new season of the network’s highest-rated unscripted series on Wednesday, March 21 at 9 p.m. ET. Hosted by Catherwood — who has a storage unit himself and is a huge fan of the show — the live edition will condense the work usually done by Allen Haff and Ton Jones in one week into just one hour.

That means they’ll have to buy a storage unit, dig through it and choose items they want to sell to the experts who’ll be gathered on set. The live broadcast will take place at a high-end auction in Los Angeles.

The series premiere of “American Digger” will follow immediately after the live show, and “Auction Hunters” will continue the following week with brand new back-to-back episodes filmed in Alaska. Haff and Jones also headed to New Orleans, Washington D.C., New York City, Honolulu, Denver and Los Angeles in Season 3.
